My experience working with Kathy Quick was the best house searching experience I have ever had. She focused on the essence of what I desired in a home and honed in on it with gusto. Her partner/husband was a huge asset in the arrangement and was a major contributor to the plan for house hunting. Not only did he make the search for houses easy by doing all the driving, but he did his own housing searches based on the outcomes from the previous day and sent them to me in the evening after a long day of house hunting. The Quicks both gave expert advice on loans and mortgages and I truly felt they had my best interests at heart. As my schedule didn't lend itself to facilitate the inspectors and appraisors visits to the house I selected, the Quick team was there and got the job done. A full and thorough account of the outcomes and reports were promptly sent to me along with their seasoned advice and suggestions. It truly was an experience that I would reccommend to others. I feel I gained l a life-long source for trustworthy realty services and life-long friends.
I'll begin in the middle of our story with a funny comment that I made while we were out house hunting. I whispered to my wife: "Kathy's obviously an alien... there's no realtor on earth that's this well prepared," we all had a good laugh. But what was meant as a nice compliment, was really a testament to how Kathy conducts her business affairs. Her level of service is simply out of this world. Back to the beginning of the story. We recently relocated from the Caribbean to Portland with my wife and three boys. As you can image the logistics of picking up and moving thousands of miles away is a daunting affair; but Kathy and her team made the process incredibly smooth. Before we even made our first trip to Portland, Kathy worked with us to identify our most important criteria. For us, it was all about the schools, a good family neighborhood and a home that represented a good value. She setup several searches that kept track of our requirements and we shared our feedback on those homes that interested us most. Over the course of a couple weeks, we narrowed the universe of candidates down to a couple hundred in Lake Oswego and West Linn. It was clear from the outset that Kathy really keeps on top of the market. In preparation for our house hunting trip to Portland, Kathy's team had setup a private website especially for us... and uploaded additional pictures of over 50 homes that she toured for us. So not only did we get to see the complete MLS listing and photos, we also were able to view the photos and information she gathered for us on our top candidates. When we arrived in Portland, waiting for us at our hotel was a leather-bound dossier on the properties we were to preview over the next three days. It contained maps, driving directions, neighborhood and school info, color photos, listing info, and on and on. Because of all the time and effort Kathy invested ahead of our trip, we were able to preview over 40 homes in just two days. Amazing! We made an offer before we returned to P.R. and negotiated a fantastic deal on a home in West Linn. Needless to say, we're very pleased to recommend Kathy and Quick & Associates Real Estate to anyone relocating, buying or selling a home. Bottom line: she's the best!
We recently sold our home in West Lake through Kathy Quick and wanted to convey how pleased we were with the entire experience. The most important thing that stands in our minds was just how smoothly everything went. There was no anxiety. No tense moments. From the moment we talked to Kathy about listing our home, we just knew we were in good hands. Kathy’s very easy to talk to; very approachable. But you also get the sense that she’s a professional who knows her business very well. Kathy also help us with our relocation to Phoenix – which was another huge positive. So instead of facing an uncertain move to an unfamiliar city, the experience turned out to be fantastic (and we absolutely love our new home). Kathy has our sincere thanks and we give her our highest recommendation.

Kathy and Scott Quick are incredibly accomplished real estate professionals. They were clearly were interested in finding me the perfect house, not just a house. Their true professionalism is very apparent. They walked me meticulously through each step of purchasing a home. Every challenge was dealt with in a timely manner and to my complete satisfaction. I would highly recommend this team to anyone considering purchasing a home in the Portland Metro area or surrounding suburbs.
WOW, WOW, WOW..... just moved to Portland from out of state. Found Kathy on Zillow and she helped us find out dream condo. She listened to our wish list and found us a perfect new home. She made the entire process so easy. She really knows her stuff and we would HIGHLY recommend Kathy to anybody that is looking for a condo or home in the Portland area.

Kathy is BY FAR the most knowledgable realtor on the Portland waterfront. I have been looking for a condo on the river for several years now. The search was frustrating beyond belief until I met Kathy Quick at an open house. Kathy knew so much about all of the different condo complexes, easily identified the units for sale that were a good value and didn't waste my time on a bunch of condos that didn't meet my needs. I can't say enough good things about my experience with Kathy.

Kathy represented us in the sale of our home in West Linn as well as in the purchase of our new home in the Southwest Hills in Portland. During the buying process, Kathy made us feel extremely comfortable as she worked at our pace. She kept us up-to-date on the market, but was never pushy. But what really impressed us was the fact she got us in to preview certain properties BEFORE they went on the market – which speaks volumes about her network. And... when we switched gears from looking for waterfront properties to homes in the Southwest Hills, she didn’t miss a beat. We are now living in a gorgeous home overlooking the Willamette River with views of Mt Hood and Saint Helens! When it came time to sell our home in West Linn, Kathy delivered again. We were able to net the highest price per square foot in our neighborhood in a very reasonable amount of time... and at a time when the market was starting to cool. We handed her the keys and she took care of the rest. We received an offer very close to our asking price from a very well qualified buyer. The transaction went off without a hitch. In short, it was a great experience and we would recommend Kathy without hesitation. She is a true professional.
We found the contact information for Kathy on zillow when we were looking to buy our first home. She was the first and the last real estate agent we spoke and worked with. I told her what kind of a house we were looking for and she sent us endless lists and took us on multiple day long tours to all parts of Portland. When her schedule did not allow, she arranged for her husband, Scott to take us on tours and answer our endless questions. Our criteria for a home changed multiple times as first time home buyers and Kathy had the patience to go through the process with us. Finally, five months after we met her, we bought a house that is beyond what we could have imagined and she found it for us! She is an incredible reator and we recommend her to anyone and especially for those who are new to home buying! You will be very satisfied at the end!
